Three Carrick-based travel agents are celebrating after their company was handed the Queen’s Award for Enterprise, the UK’s highest accolade for business success.
Andrea Kirkpatrick, Michelle Thake and Pamela Marshall each run their own home-based travel business as part of leading independent company Travel Counsellors.
The company received the award for International Trade having successfully brought its unique business model, which focuses on providing customers with the highest levels of personal service, to several overseas markets.
Andrea said: “We are so proud to be part of a company that has received the Queen’s Award for a second time and that has grown globally because its customers trust the independent, expert, personalised travel advice we provide. Our customers appreciate the fact that we are always there for them should they need us and they can be safe in the knowledge that their money is safe in the Travel Counsellors’ dedicated financial trust fund.”
